Injecting Your Personal Style and Tastes Into an Original Work of Art

painting of Canada150 poppy on office wall

You have a beautiful space in your home or corporate office, but the walls are bare. You have thought about buying a print, but it just doesn’t feel right, after all you have put so much time and effort into creating a beautiful and unique space. A cheap print just doesn’t seem like the way to top off your dream interior, like your clothing, you want to express your inner creativity and personality. You are not an artist, but the art you choose is an extension of you, your personality, tastes and a way to express yourself.

As a painter I create series of paintings, or themes and over the year’s the themes have evolved. From paintings of trees, to paintings inspired by the landscape and my travels. For the past decade I have been inspired by themes of Canada (symbolism, pop culture and landscapes) These bodies of work are the core of my artistic comment, they are my creative expressions about my thoughts on the world. Sometimes, my creative expression on canvas meshes with a collector’s and the collector buys the painting. Sometimes a client approaches me because they like what I create or my style of painting, but they want something for their home or office that is customized for their needs or taste. This is where commissioning a painter, can be a wonderful solution to your art collecting or interior decorating needs. Every so often a client will ask if I would consider creating a custom artwork for their walls. As an artist it gives me the opportunity to get to know my client on a deeper level and collaborate with them on bringing their unique creative expression to life. Commissioned works of art offer the ability for the non-artist to express their unique creative perspective and the result is a piece of art that is an extension of YOU.

Here are a few commissioned paintings I have created for clients over the years. One piece was created directly from a client supplied photograph and the other was created after a meeting with the client and a tour of their space. The third painting was created by client supplied iPhone photos and stories of the special places the couple fell in love. I communicate with my clients on their terms,  proving that you don’t have to be in the same room to collaborate on a project. Some clients prefer email, some FaceTime, in-person or by phone. Many times it is a combination of communications required, and thankfully in this modern age, there are a variety of options available for to discuss options and ideas with clients. Below are photos of the resulting commissioned paintings, created for these original art loving clients. Find out more about commissioning an original painting, contact me here.
